I Heart My Magimix {Review}

This review has been in the works for a while now. I wanted to use this bad boy several times before sharing my thoughts with you all. If you are in the market for a heavy duty food processor that literally does it all, then look no further!
A few months ago, the people at Magimix By Robot-Coupe were kind enough to contact me and send me this food processor to review. This powerful machine is no joke! When the box arrived, I couldn't believe how many different attachments and pieces that came with it....

  • 6-cup, 10-cup and 12-cup mixing bowls.
  • 2 metal Sabatier blades, one for small bowl, and one for medium and large bowls.
  • Dough blade.
  • 2 grating discs.
  • 2 slicing discs.
  • Blender Mix attachment.
  • Egg whisk.
  • Spatula.
  • Recipe book and DVD.
  • Storage box.
Unpacking the box was slightly overwhelming, I definitely wondered what half of this stuff even does! Upon reading the instructions though I realized it's not all that confusing...but I'm still unsure what the circular white piece in the upper right of this pic does. Stephen and I thought it was just a piece of plastic used in packing. I'm glad we didn't throw it away- it obviously does something. 

Ahhhh, upon further research I found out it's the blendermix attachment. Now I can't wait to try it out to make Ella's purees extra creamy. 
Let's talk pros, because there are a lot of them. The first thing I noticed is that the Magimix is quiet! I have no qualms about using it while Ella is napping. How convenient is that?! I love how powerful it is, and how it turns all of the fruits and veggies into purees with such ease, leaving no chunks! That is important especially when making baby food. 

It is very durable and sturdy. I could tell this baby is going to hold up for a long time. The chrome is very simple and wipes clean easily. Speaking of simplicity, there are only three buttons on the food processor itself - on, off, and pulse...easy peasy!

Okay so yessss, there are a bunch of attachments. Depending on you you look at it, it can be either a pro or a con. I like to think of it as a major positive even though they all overwhelmed me at first. The little storage box it comes with is perfect for packing it all away neatly. There are a few key pieces that are my "go to" attachments however it is great to know that the possibilities are endless as far as what else I could use this machine for. I don't have a need for a multitude of kitchen appliances since this is an all-in-one food processor. 

In addition to a TON of baby food purees (fruit, vegetables AND meats), I've also made bases for several soups, as well as sauces. The other night I used the smaller 6 cup bowl to make salad dressing. 
One thing I wasn't impressed with the mash and puree kit. Then again I only attempted it once with sweet potatoes. There is a chance I may have been using it wrong, the directions were a little confusing I'm not going to lie. The food processor itself purees her food so well, I just didn't find a need for the extra attachement anyway.

The only other con I could think of is that since there are so many pieces, there is a lot to clean. The fact that there are multiple mixing bowls helps a lot though when cranking out 8 different kinds of purees!

It is definitely on the pricey side ($350)...but I would say it is SO worth it to have one machine that is capable of doing so much. There are also additional slicing discs, and a juicing attachment that looks like something I may want to get into!

For the past few weekends, my typical Sunday has looked a lot like this...
All things considered, I'm more than pleased with this beast of a kitchen appliance. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is in need of a food processor that can do it all! Ella is loving all of the yuminess that I've prepared for her so far. There is MUCH more where that came from. I hope this review was helpful to you all.
